The Customer Support is Excellent!

It was very easy to create a custom remote control with only the buttons that I wanted, then program them with the existing remotes.

I've had this product for about three months now, used with an iPhone 4, and I agree with the other positive comments about the product and software. It's easy to use and works very well.

The only issue I had when I received it was that the opening of my iPhone's plastic protective case was a little too small to accommodate the thickness of the dongle. I used a router (a knife or razor blade would work too) to shave-off a millimeter of the case to allow the dongle to fit.

I downloaded the templates for six home theater components, then customized them to my liking (a very easy process). For my HDTV remote configuration, I set up a button for each of my most-watched channels (about 20) controlling my Comcast cable box; and labeled each with the channel name (History, HGTV, etc.), rather than number, so they are much easier to find.

I discovered a couple of features that are not commonly mentioned:

1) The iPhone vibrates when an L5 app button is pressed, providing tactile feedback.
2) When the L5 application is active on the iPhone, and the iPhone is not moved for about 30 seconds, it goes into a low-power, dimmed-screen mode. As soon as the iPhone is moved, it immediately comes out of low power, the screen brightens and it's ready to use (no password needed). It works this way even when the iPhone is configured to automatically log-out after a few minutes. Very convenient!

Summary: Powerful, massively-multi-functional, remote control attachment for your iDevice (iTouch, iPhone, iPad). It controls all your devices either from pre-designed virtual remotes or from virtual remotes you created. It does not suck up your iDevice's battery life. But it can be quite difficult to design your own remotes. Note: L5 has an online library of many remotes that are very easy to download. You simply enter a search for the model of your real remote, download, and begin using. Will L5 have your pre-made virtual remotes? It did not have my Insignia TV model (though it had other Insignia models), it did not have my Sony blue ray dvd (although it had many other Sony models). It only had my Apple TV remote (which, ironically, there is a free app for). So I had to design two remotes with all the features of my TV and my BR-DVD.

1. The attachment is small and might easily be lost
2. If L5 does not have the precise, pre-built remote you need (for your TV, DVR, Amp, Tuner, etc), then you will have to design your own virtual remote
3. Designing your own virtual remote is not easy (I'll go into this in a bit, since I consider this its major downfall)
4. [Applies to all such devices; not just the L5]You may be unpleasantly surprised to discover how much your have come to rely on the physical geography of your remotes. Our hands and fingers feel their way around the contours and buttons with the speed that comes from habit. These virtual remotes provide no such geography. So you will have to look at your remote every time you wish to access some feature. Similarly, the smaller your iDevice, the less you will see of your remote on the screen. For example, my iPad shows me the full remote in most cases.

I bought an L5 Universal remote. It is really fun and easy to program. The flexibility of the custom screens you can create allow you to create custom remotes with just the buttons you want. I get a good signal at over 20 feet.

Only one thing which would improve it: It'd be nice if it could give you a vibrate response when you hit a button so you got a bit more tactile response (it does beep which is good.)

If you want to try out the app to test out the program in features, it's free on iTunes.

Words can't express how satisfied I am with this product. I like it so much I bought 2 more and 3 iPhone docks. I plan to keep one of these in the 3 rooms in my house where I have TV's.

Up until a few days ago I had a Harmony 1100 in my living room. I had a Sony universal remote in my bedroom, and in my office I had 4 remotes controlling a Panasonic DVD Recorder with Built In Hard Drive, VCR, Cable Box w/DVR, and 10 year old Sony XBR-450 Television. Those remotes are all retired thanks to the L5. I even use this thing to control my Bose Sounddock 10 with my iPod.

This thing is absolutely incredible and I'm thinking about buying a few of these for my friends. I was going to buy a Logitech Link but it got horrible reviews on Amazon. Best Buy had a big table showing all of the different mobile remote controls and this thing wasn't even on it. All of the remotes on the Best Buy chart got horrible reviews on Amazon. I got frustrated and simply did a search for "iPhone remote control" and low and behold this showed up at the top of the search results with excellent reviews.

The first one was shipped quickly through Amazon but the 2nd and 3rd one I had to get through a 3rd party merchant because Amazon had sold out!

This remote does everything my Harmony 1100 remote does. The difference is you can't use the Harmony 1100 in your bedroom, office, and living room with this thing you can! I love the pull out (drawer) menus as well. This allows me to make my remote control nice and clean where I don't have to scroll all over the place.

Now I should point out that while this was able to learn every single command on every remote control I gave it, it was not able to learn the remote control I have in the house that controls the fan and lights.
